6 out of 180 practical examples

Positive experiences instead of initial scepticism

Hans Bernreuther, PRO-BEST Profilsysteme GmbH

"When we used polymer bearings for the first time in a facility over six years ago, we were more than sceptic as to whether they would be able to withstand our high level of dirt accumulation over time. Today, polymer bearings are exclusively used in all bearing points"

Self-adjusting, maintenance-free and easy to install

Tilo Lechner, KHS Maschinen- und Anlagenbau

When designing a highly dynamically driven application head for a carrier handle dispenser "there was no way around plastic rod end bearings and plain bearings." We have already worked together with igus® many times, and the company was always known to be innovative. Moreover the project monitoring was ideal."

Production under clean room conditions

Dipl.-Ing. Günter Eisele, STEAG Hamatech:

"The plastic part goes on and on. With metallic materials, on the other hand, they were finished after a million cycles at the most."

Wind, sand and sun

Bernd Krabbe, SolarOptimius

"We explained our requirements to several bearings suppliers and requested for solution proposals - the solutions proposed by igus® were the most convincing for us. “

Vibration dampening and high load capacity

Martin Schkrobol, Huzap GmbH

"With igubal® spherical bearings we have found ideal machine elements. They fulfil all the technical requirements and at the same time keep costs down."

Only a fifth of the weight of conventional bearing housing

Stefan Gröneweg, Gröneweg Maschinenbau GmbH

"The plastic elements from igus® are resistant to dirt, grease and cleaning agents. They are also very durable and maintenance-free, so no additional costs arise."

Wellness in the barn

Lubrication-free polymer bearing technology for cow cleaners

In modern barns the cows roam freely. Farmers invest in cow cleaners on the one hand to increase their comfort factor, and on the other to be able to avail of the EU funding.
